couple of those talking points, what they may face. let's start with syria. what should the u.s. do about syria? if we don't do anything, al qaeda is already there sowing the seeds of their influence. do we intervene, do we stay on the sidelines? romney won't say what he would do if he put boots on the ground, but he continues to say the president has done too little. >> obama's argument, if, in fact, it comes up, we're coming off two wars in american history where the standard question is not when will we win, but when can we leave? romney is going to challenge him and he's going to say, and the great strength and weakness of the romney foreign agenda is he's got to counteract the presidency. we don't know what mitt romney will do or not, so he can basically say to the president, look, you need to arm me the rebels. you need to seriously consider a no fly zone, but there is a trap there for the governor because that takes america down a road away from the reality that the domestic economy is going to be the key issue. so that's one. israel is another key issue, and here i think the

on in syria a. the great concern the obama administration has had and the reason why the u.s. has not sought to arm the rebels is because some of those rebels may be totally opposed to the united states, maybe closer to al qaeda, for example, than to the united states, so once you start arming rebels in a major way, you're not sure where those weapons are going to wind up, and that's been the big concern of the obama administration right now. how do you make sure that the weapons you provide rebels are really going to the good guys as it were as opposed to the potential bad guys and that's not an easy question to answer. >> never. in fact, we have countless examples where this has gone awry. hold the thought for a moment. if you could stand by, i have a lot more questions i need to ask you. in the meantime as the news continues to break, i want to check in now on mitt romney who spent the weekend campaigning in florida before heading to virginia. that's where today's live event is about to take place and our national political correspondent jim acosta is live on the campaign trail
